The man who played the wolfman came to call!

Spencer Craig and husband

We are in my daughter's and her partners house in Prestatyn Wales. Craig met this man Spencer Wilding at his job in a resort nearby and brought him around to meet us. He starred in the Wolfman with Anthony Hopkins. He said to google his name he told us he played a part in a Harry Potter movie and other films. He said is 6ft 7in on a good day Craig is tall 6ft 2in. We shook hands I asked to take this photo and my husband is sitting down in the background.

ABAKHAN store in Mostyn Wales

Outside and under cover
Fabric Bundles

I am in Wales now seeing my family no sewing for nearly two weeks. Today we visited a ABAKHAN store in Mostyn a few miles away. I stocked up on rolls of fabric at only 60p a bundle and a bag full of cottons and buttons. There is lots of fabrics, wool, crafts, haberdashery and workshops.We enjoyed lunch there in the coffee house. It was a flying visit we will be back again soon for longer next time.

celebrate autumn colour

Celebrate colour link
Orange Patchwork
I got the idea for this bag when I noticed the vibrant colours on a CD cover. I loved the orange tones with dark browns and white. I liked the ethnic feel and tried to recreate it with this bag Orange Patchwork.

I used this bright orange curtain material and used double thickness I added rich dark brown corduroy patchwork. I made pockets which close with velcro and stitched them to the front.  The finishing touch is this metal and white button. The bag has a crisp green/white cotton lining with matching pockets. These colours remind me of Autumn.

Choosing material for Christmas bunting.

I was looking through some material and found these pieces. I haven't made bunting before and would love to give it a try how exciting! It will so look colourful and festive strung along the mantlepiece this Christmas. I will have a go at making a table runner too, a first also.
